Are You as Smart as a Rock?

Posted In: Comics

Rocks – can they become computers? Well, maybe, with the right kind of software to make sense of all the senseless and chaotic activity going on inside a rock. Pretty interesting stuff. If cars are now able to self-drive, what will a rock be able to do in a few years? View/Post Comments

FEAR of The MACHINES

Posted In: Comics

Many people are painting a doomsday, terminator style, scenario of machines in society and in the workplace – taking over completely, starting by making human labour obsolete. The shift to more machine labour is no doubt disrupting peoples’ lives in the short term (no longer needed), but in the long term we will likely see many new, better paid,... View/Post Comments

Why Does It Taste Like Chicken?

Posted In: Comics

What came first, the chicken or the egg? Well, authority on the subject says the egg came first. But how do we explain why many things non-chicken, taste like chicken? Some say it’s because of ancestry, animals coming from birds/chickens, etc. T-Rex, the dinosaur, apparently, could have tasted like chicken. Crocodiles definitely taste like chicken (I can recommend croc-ribs).... View/Post Comments

Easter Monkey Solves Chicken/Egg Mystery

Posted In: Comics

Easter question of the day, what DID come first? According to science basically two non-chickens had sex, the DNA in their new zygote (cell) mutated, and the egg was formed – without any chickens involved. Problem solved. Now eat some eggs, and whatever else you eat on Easter! Source Acknowledgement: Kelly Pittman, letterpile.com. View/Post Comments

Yoda: Jedi Master of FEAR

FEAR, basically ruling your life in one way or the other.

Online Piracy

Posted In: Comics

Free, or Stealing? This debate has been raging for years now. Will piracy perhaps come to a stop, almost, now that people realize they can be tracked down very easily, all their online activities are stored, and just subject to a search warrant, if you are suspected of stealing stuff online? Maybe. What do you think?

Monkey Brain Hacking Your Mind

Playboy President

Facebook: don’t buy the stock!

Human + Machine = Love ?

Posted In: Comics

There’s a lot of talk, fear and predictions about machines pushing us out of our jobs and taking over, causing social upheaval. That’s probably, hopefully, people’s Monkey Brain kicking in (representing fear, doubt, assuming the worst outcome). We are more likely to work hand in hand with machines, in fact – we are already doing it. Your thoughts? View/Post Comments

Are you Mind-FULL, or Mind-LESS ?

Posted In: Comics

MINDLESSNESS. Mindfulness is a hip topic these days – live in the present, reduce stress, do yoga and meditate. Great, but it should perhaps be called MindLESSness – if you go deeper into the topic, it’s a state of NO MIND which is the desired outcome. Give us your thoughts 🙂 View/Post Comments

Monkey brain goes to Mars
